A true western vintage lens shootout! I squint my way through three different comparisons between the Minolta Rokkor 55mm f/1.7 and the Canon PF 55mm f/1.2. Both lenses date from the 1970’s and present unique character and rendering.
This video was a blast to put together. I had a great time riffing the Classic Sergio Leone film starring Clint Eastwood. Lots of special editing in this one. The cigarillo shown is actually a wooden dowel stained and painted to look real. All the smoke was added in post production. Lots of green screen work in this video!
Filming this video, I crashed my Mavic Mini drone. Here’s the blog post about the crash.
